Phone Messages

It’s a snow day! A headteacher wants to pass the message along to let all the other teachers know. The Blue boxes correspond to teachers. Black lines connect each person with the people that they must pass the messages to.

Each phone call lasts three minutes. Each person can only talk to a single person on the phone at a time.

When the headteacher starts the first phone call to announce a message, how many minutes go by until the message is completely delivered to all 39 teachers?

6 May - Mathematics

Follow the Numbers

In Maths we use patterns all the time, either we are looking to find a pattern or we use a pattern to give reason for something existing!

In this challenge you are going to be ‘Following the Numbers’ and seeing how many different patterns you can find and maybe even being able to explain why the patterns occur.

The rule simple:

  1. Choose a random two digit number.
  2. Add together the two digits and multiply that answer by 2.
  3. Keep repeating step 2 until you find a pattern.

Here is an example:

  1. My random number is 14
  2. 1 + 4 = 5              5 x 2 = 10
  3. 1 + 0 = 1              1 x 2 = 2
  4. 0 + 2 = 2              2 x 2 = 4
  5. 0 + 4 = 4              4 x 2 = 8
  6. 0 + 8 = 8              8 x 2 = 16
  7. 1 + 6 = 7              7 x 2 = 14
  8. 1 + 4 = 5              5 x 2 = 10

You can see a pattern emerge from the right of 10, 2, 4, 8, 16, 14, 10 … which would then continue 2, 4, 8, 16, 14, 10, 2, 4, 8, 16, 14, 10…

From experimenting, I know that some numbers take longer to start showing a pattern and other numbers are really fast to show a pattern.

Your task is to use the rule given to investigate what different patterns are created from different starting numbers and create a poster showing your research and what you have discovered.

Your challenge task is to change the rule as you wish, maybe use a three digit number or multiply by a different amount than 2. Do you discover new patterns, can you find a digit that gives the shortest or longest number of steps before a pattern is formed?

Good luck and we cannot wait to see all of your entries!

20 May - Languages and Linguistics

Codebreaker!

 

You are on the trail of an international jewel thief, but you need to know where the next rendezvous with your informant from Kashmir will take place.

All you have is part of the cipher and a coded message from your informant, which will tell you what to do next. Can you crack the code?

 

Here is the incomplete cipher – once you know where in the cipher each letter of the alphabet fits in, you will be able to work out which letters are being written using the code.  The code is based on the layout of the cipher.

Can you work out where in the cipher grids the missing letters of the alphabet fit?  Have a look, and then try and complete the exercises on the next page.

Crack the code!
